To say I had a bad night would be an understatement, it was more like one of those that the sun rises outside and you wonder how that can be possible since you didn't sleep at ALL....and no amount of willing the time back will do it either. I tried!
Both Jasmine and Nicholas are home from school today, both sick with a cold, both running fevers and both cranky and whiny. They were also the reason I was up all night, having a sick child is not easy but when it's both at the same time it's downright ridiculous, I've mastered the art of cleaning a running nose while hushing someone else to sleep in the next room. Just when I thought they were finally asleep, I would crawl back into bed and close my eyes and BAM again, someone crying that they can't breathe or just crying because they felt awful.
So anyway, it's morning, they're both settled in front of the tv with their blankets and their pillows, they've had their breakfast and the cold medicine and I think that pretty soon they will be out for the count. At this point I wonder "maybe I could slip back into bed for a nap" but you know what? I'm not like that, I'm the kind of person that the minute I get up in the morning I just can't go back to bed.....crazy I know, but what can I do?
I have my hot cup of coffee and a piece of toast that I'm not enjoying, the toast that is, the coffee is my salvation in the mornings. It's going to be one of those days!
I finished the Robin Hood Season 2 series and I loved it and hated it. Yes, both, more on the hated the last episode and cried my eyes out and got very annoyed with the writers. Even Nicholas was shocked and upset and if you can get a 5 year old to shed a tear in a season finale, you KNOW something is not right.
I would tell you what it was that upset us, but in case there's someone out there busy watching the series, I don't want to spoil it. I'll just say that I'm very irritated LOL But I can't wait for the new season to start in January of 2009 on BBC, it helps that Jonas Armstrong is very easy on the eyes.
I'm sure you were expecting me to say more, but I have nothing, zilch, nada. it's what happens when you're tired and feeling sort of out of it. I know I have a load of laundry to wash, iron and put away but that's the extent of my to do list for today. Well maybe some reading but I doubt much else will get done with two sick kiddos, so I figured I would end this post with something I used to do a long time ago, like when I first started blogging:
Dinner tonight is Galinha A Braz - it's this portuguese dish that includes cooked chicken, fries and eggs all together, it's kind of like a big casserole egg thingy. Ugh it's hard to try and translate things LOL
